Two-day Phang Nga Province Birding Tours

Brahminy KitePhang Nga Province offers many birding opportunities. The terrain varies from mangrove forests, to marshland, to secondary jungle to old-growth jungle. The best time of the year to visit Phuket for bird watching is from December through March as the many species of migratory birds will be present.

Many birds are very active during April and May too as it is their breeding season. Mangrove and Blue-winged Pittas, for example, are very active during this time. They call regularly and it is the easiest time to find these normally elusive tropical birds.

Vernal Hanging ParrotPhang Nga Province also has an abundant array of tropical resident birds.
